A special screening of Turner Prize-winning artist Charlotte Prodger’s new major single channel video work, commissioned and promoted by Scotland + Venice for the 58th International Art Exhibition - La Biennale di Venezia, and touring Scotland at the same time as it is being presented to audiences in Venice.
The artist’s most ambitious work to date, SaF05 draws upon multiple sources – archival, scientific and diaristic – and combines footage from a number of geographical locations (the Scottish Highlands, the Great Basin Desert, the Okavango Delta and the Ionian Islands). SaF05 is named after a maned lioness that figures in the work as a cipher for queer attachment and desire.
The screening will include a short film documenting the project development, and will be followed by a talk with members of the Scotland + Venice team and curator Helen Nisbet.
A free, ticketed event.
Please be aware you must be aged 15 or over to see this film, and you may be required to show photographic I.D. to gain entry to the cinema.
